Period:   from the beginning of 1980's to the beginning of 1990's
Type:   Broadcast TV cameras
Quantity:   2 specimens available

The famous 'BETACAM' design was the popular Sony ENG 'stand alone' camera kit, whereby the camera, power supply and vt recorder (BVV 1PS) were combined in one unit. Launched in 1984, this camera employed a single Trinicon tube(Saticon) which delivered upwards of 400 lines of horizontal definition. The camera/recorder had no playback capability and so tapes needed a separate player. With an adaptor, the BVV 1PS recorder could also be used to record from other cameras. Our Betacam (still in working condition) was used by a regional broadcaster on local news.
